Come join PhD students (Sociology) Jamilah Dei-Sharpe, Hone Mandefro, and Kymani Montgomery, the University Research Chairs in Indigenous Art History and Community Engagement, Heather Igloliorite, and Ethnocultural Art Histories, Alice Ming Wai Jim, and Postdoctorate fellow, Dr. Angeles Cohen, at our inaugural event to launch Concordia University’s Decolonial Perspectives and Practises (DPP) Hub on November 1st from 4:45-6:00pm at 4TH SPACE.
Let's collaboratively foster a multidisciplinary, learning environment on campus to be reflexive of our Eurocentric training - a space to share our positionalities as we center Indigenous, non-Western, LGBTQ+, Middle-Eastern, Black and African diaspora, East and South Asian perspectives and more to generate accessible, timely, inclusive, ground-breaking research. In this session, we question the impact of our identities on our knowledge production - engaging with the questions: How does your identity influence the connection you have with your research and research participants? The knowledge you create? The scholars you source? The worldview that drives your work? And the voices that are not present?
